The Federal Communications Commission authorized non-geostationary satellite systems (NGSO) to share Ku-Band spectrum with geostationary satellites in an order that was adopted by the panel Thursday.

The non-geostationary systems are expected to offer broadband, video and telephony services to businesses and individuals. There are seven pending applications that propose to use non-geostationary satellites, the best-known of which is SkyBridge, backed by Loral and Alcatel.

The systems must avoid interference with other satellites, including DBS and other spacecraft that use Ku-Band spectrum, under the FCC's order. The FCC order also creates a sharing method for the systems to simultaneously operate in shared spectrum most of the time.

In a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking adopted Thursday, the commission proposed a methodology for NGSO licensees to demonstrate that their systems are within limits concerning power that is emitted from satellites. The FCC also wants comment on whether the definition of in-line interference events adopted in the order should be adjusted with respect to higher-powered transmitters
